Double ace combination?
Honda will announces 2016 Motorsports activity plan at Feb,14.
Before the announce, NSX user team testing at Suzuka yesterday. Interesting news from this testing.
Long time Honda leading driver Takashi Kogure who race with Drago Modulo 2015.
But Kogure drove #17 Real Racing for this testing. It seems to Kogure will joins Real Racing for 2016 season.
If that happens, very interesting and strong lineup Tsukakoshi and Kogure.
And more rumor, Honda will remove Hybrid system. Because Honda only use Hybrid for road car of promotion. But NSX is special certification on GT500 class, so NSX has extra wight handicap. In addition, Hybrid system cause some trouble.
